Turkey Spur Overlook

view of distant river
New River Gorge, West Virginia
You can drive to this fine view of the gorge in Grandview. A Park Service sign provides a map and trail information. It also tells us that the "unique outcrop" called Turkey Spur may have been named for the turkey vultures which are abundant here.

Also abundant here are rhododendron bushes, which were blooming when we were here a week ago.

  2. I love looking at rivers. I live two blocks from our local river, but it rarely has water during our California drought. This is a beautiful shot.

  3. An amazing view and some beautiful flowers!

  4. Beautiful view and I love the rhodos. Have a happy day!
